Word for today: Discovery
Art-making as pilgrimage helps us to understand the arts as a process of discovery about ourselves and about God. When we enter the creative process with the intention of listening for the movements of the Spirit, we discover new insights about ourselves and God.
—Christine Valters Paintner, The Soul of a Pilgrim: Eight Practices for the Journey Within
Reflective Question: Can you allow yourself to view your art-making as a meditation practice, and in this way let yourself be led by the divine impulse within? Can you leave behind your preconceived ideas and inner critical voices, and enter the unknown in the hope of being transformed?
